A fantastic and well equipped house
A fantastic and well equipped house that was perfect for our family holiday with two young children and the grandparents. We particularly liked the views from the lounge and this made the couple of rainy days we had much more pleasant. The house is up a steep hill but it isn't a long walk from the beach and it was perfectly manageable with our 2 year old and new born. We wouldn't hesitate to book this property again.
Luxurious accommodation with bright open aspect
This is the 16th year we have brought the whole family to Woolacombe and this property surpasses them all. Luxurious accommodation with bright open aspect spacious enough for all the family to get together. Views of Woolacombe beach and countryside in peaceful location.

Absolutely amazing house! The views are wonderful
Absolutely amazing house! The views are wonderful, the location is great, we walked into and back from Woolacombe very easily with 2 children, it is a steep hill so anyone with walking difficulties could struggle.
There is everything you could ask for, the house was spotlessly clean and everything was to a high standard, would go back tomorrow.

The views to the sea, beach and coastline are simply gorgeous
We loved this modern, beautifully appointed property. The views to the rear of the sea, beach and coastline are simply gorgeous. We loved the comfortable beds and the option of clean laundry after a week. The kitchen and bathrooms are great, although a few new-build snagging issues need attending to (shower door sticking, master bedroom en suite fan not working and door not closing). The patio and garden are a bonus - a washing line and table umbrella would be a good addition in the future. My kids loved the mezzanine floor. The town and the fabulous beach are a few minutes walk away, although it is uphill on the way back.The housekeeper was very helpful and prompt in reply.

Many thanks, we had a great time and the house was lovely and in a great location.
Probably the best holiday home we have stayed in.
Absolutely beautiful home. Probably the best holiday home we have stayed in. Wonderful touch of the Easter treats left around the house. Our girls were delighted to be looking for them whilst we unpacked. The location was fantastic and the views stunning. Having never been to Woolacombe before we will definitely return and recommend this property.

Just finishing a long weekend here and we have had the most fabulous time. This house is unreal. We’ve stayed in many house over the years but none as well appointed and comfortable as this. It is better than my home! Thank you very much.

A fantastic break
Long days walking and exploring and surfing and totally relaxing.
My second time here as an escape for a long weekend – this has to be the ultimate. I can’t begin to imagine how gorgeous it is in the Summer. Long days walking and exploring and surfing and totally relaxing. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. We will be back in a month or so.
This is the ultimate

We have absolutely loved our stay at this house. With the stunning view outside and the beautiful décor inside we couldn’t have asked for much more. The house was very well equipped.

Amazing house used to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday.
Amazing house used to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday. Beautiful views and the weather was great we would definitely stay again.
This house is worth every penny. If for the views alone!
This house is worth every penny. If for the views alone!
We visited mid June for 9 nights, as a group of 4 adults and 2 children (parents, grandparents, a child aged 2 1/2 and a newborn aged 9 weeks). We had booked for 7 nights but were able to pay extra and arrive 2 days earlier due to a cancellation.
Immediately upon arriving at Long Beach House we were thrilled to see that it was EXACTLY as described and the pictures EXACTLY how the house is. The house was cleaned to an amazing standard (better than some big hotels we've stayed in!) and we were greeted by a lovely welcome basket. The view from the back garden is simply breath taking and is mesmerizing to watch, we found ourselves just sitting and staring (and it was nice to look at the sea at 4am during a night feed!) on a good day you can see Lundy Island but you can also watch the microlights and various paragliders jumping off the hill opposite.
The house has pretty much everything you can think of - travel cot, hairdryer, washer, dryer, iron, ironing board, airer, cd player, dvd player,mop, bucket, hoover, some board games and cards. There are also two wind breakers you can use which we found very handy indeed. The kitchen has everything you could of - and eating breakfast with the view of the beach is lovely. The beds are amazingly comfy, and the bedrooms are decorated nicely. The bathrooms are finished to a high standard - the rain showers are incredible! (if you don't like to get your hair wet in the shower I suggest you bring a shower cap!!) The bedrooms only have blinds so if you are a light sleeper I recommend you take an eye mask.
The house is situated 5 mins walk from the beach, pubs and shops. It is up quite a steep hill, there are 3 roads up to the house, we found walking down the nearest (but steepest) hill the best, it was a bit tiring in the heat with a baby pram and a pushchair but literally took a minute. Though its not the best walk for those who are elderly or who have trouble walking.
The only things I would suggest for the house are perhaps a few dvds for a rainy day (eg a kids film, a family movie etc) and perhaps a few more coat hangers.
Other than that we had a suberb holiday and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Really wonderful house. The service from Ocean Cottages who we booked through was excellent and cannot be faulted. The emails they sent were very clear and concise, and the agents on the phone were so polite and friendly. In addition, our security deposit was returned within 5 days.
We hope to return again soon and have already recommended to friends and family.

mesmerizing view of the countryside in one direction, sea in the other.
We had a lovely week in Woolacombe. My favourite thing about the house was the mesmerizing view of the countryside in one direction and the sea in the other. Inside it felt very much like a hotel with luxurious beds and bathrooms and everything you could need (including DVD player and games which were useful during the gales). The garden has fantastic views with a wooden table and benches as well as two sun loungers to relax on. The beach and village are a shortish walk down a steep hill so no need to drive unless you don't have enough energy for the return climb. My only suggestion would be darker blinds to keep out the morning sunshine.
Nice light and airy lounge and kitchen
This was the first time we'd been to Woolacombe, and Long Beach House was a brilliant place to stay. We were a group of 6 travelling with an 11 month old, and the property was brilliant.
The place has been redeveloped since Google Maps was last updated, so it doesn't show on street view, but the owners gave great directions, and it was very easy to find. Parking for two cars, and sleeps 6 people with two ensuite bathrooms and a larger bathroom.
Nice light and airy lounge and kitchen with all facilities provided. The only thing to watch out for is a very steep garden, but we spent all our time at the beach which is a 10 minute walk down the hill.
We had a little trouble with the gas hob initially, but soon worked out that you had to have to keep the gas pressed down while it lights and for a little while afterwards to keep the flame going.
Some nice extra touches for our visit were the welcome pack (including a nice bottle of wine)
Really enjoyed our stay and very happy to recommend this to others
“Smiths stay in woolacombe”
Having visited woolacombe as a family on many occasions, can't fault it as a beautiful holiday destination. The house was very adequate for our 6 family members, 4 adults 2 children. The views from the house where spectacular hence the price. However - although the it's location is near to the beach its not possible to walk to the beach if loaded up with all the things you need for a day on the beach, getting down wouldn't be a problem! Getting back up another matter! This is not explained in the description of the house!! Loved our stay, we were lucky with the weather so spent most of our time on the beach. The house was lovely although shower cubicles were a tight fit!! Not enough crockery,cutelry provided, & garden was a slope so no place for children to play!! Think the description of the house on website needs to be more informative, for the price we paid dont think it was it lived up to its expectations, although the house is exactly as shown on photos
location was perfect for us and the house had everything we needed.
An amazing holiday house, location was perfect for us and the house had everything we needed.
Would definitely want to come back next year!
Thank you for leaving the cake and milk! Much appreciated.

We lunched out with fabulous weather and sunshine for 10 days. Good bit of surfing at Saunton Sands & Woolacombe.
Good places to eat.
Hope to return next year.

What a lovely place that is - thanks for a great stopover. We will be back.
Lovely clean spacious and luxurious house with sea views!
Beautiful modern clean and bright airy property with lovely sea views and also across to the hills. Both main double rooms had sea views and en-suites which is great for 2 couples both wanting the 'best' rooms! Well equipped kitchen enough if you want to stay in and eat. The lovely cake on arrival was a welcome special treat, and milk in the fridge for a cuppa with it was appreciated. Easy to walk into the village and to the beach. Uphill on the way back gives added exercise but might not be as appreciated by those less able bodied! Overall a fantastic stay and would definitely consider returning. Ocean cottages were very professional to book with. Will visit again!
House with wow factor
A beautiful house with fabulous views and easy access to all the
facilities of Woolacombe, to beach and footpaths. Very clean and
quite well-equipped. Perfect for family of grandparents (if quite
mobile), parents and teenagers. 2 or 3 showers are the overhead
type, not ideal for everybody. Property managers very helpful in
every way. Would definitely stay again.
Grandma VC, London
Great house and location, literally 5 minutes from the beach.
Had everything that you'd require for self catering, clean and
comfortable. Only criticism is the light weight curtains, need to
be thicker to stop the sun shinning in at 4am! As a family we have
been holidaying at Woolacombe for years and would definitely use
Ocean Cottages and Long Beach house again.
such a beautiful house
We have all really enjoyed our stay at 3 Long Beach, such a
beautiful house and amazing views. We really appreciated the
cake and tea/coffee/milk on arrival. Thank you very
much. We can recommend the Bar Electric in Woolacombe and the
Chichester Arms in Mortehoe for Sunday roast. We enjoyed
visiting Croyde, Combe Martin and the cliff railway between Lynton
and Lynmouth is a must. Just a shame the weather wasn't
brilliant, but will definitely be recommending this house.
Thank you for a lovely holiday!
Lovely house - great views! Would recommend. Croyde worht
a visit too, toddler loved it there on the beach. Curry on
Barricane Beach was fab. Funder Island great for little one
and very handy because you can use tokens over the week. A
wonderful holiday for the Webb family
The three nights that we've spent here have been absolutely
amazing. the sights, the works, the memories made out on the beach
only to come back to a stunning house and such a beautifully
decorated house too! The trek down to Baggy Point really puts
things into perspective as you're just taken away by the sound of
the crashing waves and the sights. This trip has honestly
been a breath of fresh air, thank you so much for your
It has been so wonderful to return to the Long Beach House we
first visited nearly 3 years ago, our children now 5 and 3
years! the house just as it was, the house exceptionally
clean as usual and well equipped still. the views are
breathtakingly mesmerizing! A great lookout point and a lovely
garden to spend an early summers evening! We have been blessed with
the weather, having only 2 overcast days out of 10. but it was
still very warm. We have a tan that could rival a week in
Majorca! We mainly spent out time on the beach here in
Woolacombe but did visit Ilfracombe, Watermouth Castle and the
Wildlife and Dinosaur Park - a big hit with out son! We also
visited Saunton Beach, to see the D-Day parade which was fantastic
fun and educational too. As before, a wonderful stay in a
beautiful house, we will miss it, though we will return again
Had an awesome time. Incredible walks and managed to catch a few
waves. The house is clean and well equipped.
Fantastic location with panoramic views.
It was absolutely lovely to be able to look out over the beach
and sea from the picture windows and patio, with views across to
Lundy Island as well as to Baggy Point and Hartland. Hearing the
lapping sea was magical. Great location for exploring the area and
for coastal and country walks.
A wonderful family holiday
We have spent a lovely week here. Beautiful house, magnificent
views over the bay, wonderful beach. Lots of nice places to
A shame the weather wasn't too good but we made the most of it
and the rain didn't bother us too much. A wonderful family
holiday, hope to be back one day.
The house is beautiful
It has been a very relaxing week. The house is
beautiful. great views. We look forward to
Pat and Stuart
We all had a wonderful holiday fantastic accommodation and location. Would definitely return.
Great house in perfect location
We had a brilliant week staying here. Decor is fresh and crisp
and the kitchen is very well equipped. It was very clean and tidy
on arrival. The garden has an epic view too. Our only suggestion is
for there to be a better quality table and chairs outside so you
could enjoy the view in comfort. There's currently only a round pub
bench-style table whereas the adjoining property has a lovely table
Lovely house inside and out the back.
We had an amazing week, full of lovely memories. Beautiful house
with everything you could want (except a shaving point for my
toothbrush ). Would definitely love to come back again x
Fantastic sea view
Beautiful house with all the amenities that you need for a
comfortable holiday with fantastic views over looking the sea &
